Visiting or attending a burial

Visitors are welcomed 365 days a year from dawn to dusk but please note that there are no facilities at the site. When attending a funeral PLEASE double park to save space.

Visitors enter the Dalton Woodland Burial Ground site at their own risk and should recognise that they need to take care on uneven and possibly muddy or slippery ground; suitable footwear such as sturdy shoes, Walking or Wellington boots should be worn.

Please use common sense and avoid the woodland in storms or periods of high winds.

Because of the natural topography of the site disabled access is in places limited please contact the Estate Office for assistance with your visit; we are only too happy to help. The nearest disabled lavatory is at the Stable Yard, Dalton Hall

Before visiting please take time to read and understand the Regulations for this site which will also give you details of the Padlock PIN needed to access the main gates.

“It might make one in love with death, to think that one should be buried in so sweet a place.”

Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792-1822)

“In the sweate of thy face shalt thou eate
bread, till thou returne vnto the ground:
for out of it wast thou taken, for dust
thou art, and vnto dust shalt thou
returne”

Gensis 3:19
King James’ Bible (completed 1611)
